    Don't have any ground rules or even an edition yet but I just want to know who would be in that way we can all vote for that stuff. I'll act as DM unless someone else wants to step up.

    I would be in if someone would be willing to explain to me the basics.

    I'm with Tarry: I'm in, but you'll have to put up with me asking a lot of noob questions.

    First person to say "We've been doing that since you joined, Sword" gets a slow handclap.

    Saturday night is completely off for me, and currently so is sunday afternoon. Weeknights and Sunday nights should be fine. Except maybe Wednesday.

    I'm fine for any day after 6 eastern. Weekends should be cool too.

    Also I recommend we use Virtual Daivve.

    It'll probably be very awkward fitting my schedule in- like, ridiculously, so i'll bow out. You lot choose a time, and if by some miracle i can make it, then so be it. If not, it's no biggie.

    A VERY SHORT GUIDE TO DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS

    First off you need books and lots of them. Lucky you I have them all on my dropbox!!!!
    Player's Handbook - [​IMG]REQUIRED READING[​IMG]!!! Has all the D&D Basics READ IT
    Player's Handbook 2: Handbook Harder - Primal, Arcane, and Divine, oh my!
    Player's Handbook 3 - Psionic, Divine, and Primal (sorry about the blur)
    Dungeon Master's Guide - Not really needed unless you're the DM. Goes more in depth on some things. Might want to skim it.
    Monster Manual 1 - A bunch of premade monsters. Reading it is like cheating against lazier DMs. Also contains monster races!
    Monster Manual 2 - PENDING!

    WHAT IS THIS MAGICAL GAME?

    Dungeons &/| Dragons is a Role-playing Game. What is a role-playing game? This is really easy to answer in a boring way, such as in D&D's core rulebooks, so here's what the unrelated role-playing game F.A.T.A.L says about it:

    Or something like that. PRETEND THE D&D STAND FOR DICE AND DECISIONS.

    HOW DO I PLAY?

    90% of the time the answer is "roll d20 and add some modifier." This is explained in the books, you should probably look it up.

    D&D isn't about playing well. It's about developing a story. Usually things go awry, horribly. Which is why I encourage you to not play to win. Because when things go wrong it means you're doing everything right. I recommend you don't get bogged down in all of the books. Try to stick to the Player's Handbook if this is your first time.

    That's all I have to say.

    Damn looks like DAD got better since I last played it. Knew I should've bought those DLC's... for a board game...

    My players have been playing for 10 months now, and they still haven't read the PHB.

    So if you're going with the Sunday afternoon time, as implied by Okrag (should be evening-ish for me), I'd love to join in on this, because I've always wanted to try DnD. Mind you, being European I can only join if you play in a somewhat early (US) time, but... if it works out, this sounds like something I'd love to do.
